Odessa Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to improving park facilities and enhancing the quality of life for the Odessa Community. Below is a list of recent improvements made since 2012. In addition to recent projects, new improvements are key to the continued development of our park system and quality of life.
Floyd Gwin Park is undergoing a major renovation that will add several features and amenities that the citizens of Odessa will enjoy for years to come! Floyd Gwin Park is a 45+ acre park that serves a large portion of West Odessa. A new baseball complex with 3 little league baseball fields will be built with concession stands. There will be a lighted walking trail added that comes to about 1 mile around. It will be fully lighted for safety and is also about 8 feet wide to accommodate people walking in both directions. Once the renovations are completed, Odessans will have a modern, state-of-the-art facility, to bring their friends and families to. Below are the amenities that are planned.
